clone wars

okay, so even though i've had the entire series piling up on the tivo, i didn't get around to watching any until AFTER doing my batch of topps clone wars sketch cards... but i do dig it!
above is a sample of some of the color cards i did (most were in b/w for deadline purposes)... pretty sure thee cards hit stores soon.

well, the 'haps halloween spooktacular (with guest art on two stories by by rich woodall and none other than fred freakin' hembeck!) is out in finer comic shops everywhere, and the final issue of iron man : armor wars should be out next week (and the trade is already scheduled for february of 2010).

been hard at work on my next project and getting moving of the next 'haps story as well... seems the years of bad posture hunched over the drawing board have taken their toll and i needed to see a chiropractor about it (after a few visits, i'm already feeling better than i've been in ages... and not waking up with shooting pain, so there's that!)

been enjoying some great tv lately (can't believe mad men's season is close to ending already! and the guilty pleasure of sons of anarchy is getting better and better... finally getting into parks and recreation and community keeps getting better, and the office and 30 rock are strong as ever) and got out to see where the wild things are last week was just blown away by it.

back to the drawing board (and happy halloween, folks!),

hellboy and choopie

not the first request i've had for these two together... and heck, any excuse to draw hellboy is a good one! (don't wanna jinx myself, but there's only ONE outstanding commission in the works... the 'haps movie poster style image...)

so, since calgary, we had a great time at the baltimore comic con (celebrating todd's b-day with the gang was a highlight, among others... like meeting caleb/impulse)

finished work on armor wars (issue 4 in a few short weeks and a trade should be out in feb) and started on a few other projects for marvel (i'll fill you in when i can) as well as the next arc of the 'haps and some covers...

looking forward to my last con of 2009 in boston this weekend... if you're in the city, stop by and say "hey!"

oops, gotta go get dinner ready!
(saw where the wild things are last night and still taking it all in... beautiful and sad)

calgary, eh?

had a fantastic time up at the calgary toy and comic expo this past weekend and got to see some great stuff at the royal tyrell dinosaur museum (along with other guests including norm breyfogle and dustin weaver)... the show itself was great, kept us busy sketching and signing all day... mike even was kind enough to send me a scan of the flaming carrot piece i did for him.

made it home safely and jumped right back into getting iron man armor wars 4 finished up before the baltimore comic con this weekend (and you DO know that issue 3 is now out, right?)

so, if you're at the baltimore comic con this weekend, stop by booth 2408 and say "hey!" ... not likely we'll have the advance copies of the perhapanauts halloween spooktacular with us after all (unfortunate mix up at image... don't get me started), but we'll have the other books and swag ... and todd's smiling face, of course (not to mention booth boy extraordinaire, officer mulcahy)

... and when i get back, i think it's time to catch up on piles of unread comics, unwatched dvds, and some sleep ...
